This award has been designed as an introductory qualification for those who aim to teach, tutor, or train in the Lifelong Learning sector; adult or community learning, work-based learning, or teaching in a Further Education college.

Teaching hours are not needed to achieve this qualification.

Course Content

You will:

  • understand the role, responsibilities, and boundaries in relation to teaching/training

  • demonstrate session planning skills and how to create a scheme of work
  • understand how to deliver inclusive sessions
